1. Do you feel you are making progress towards your longterm goals?
I do feel I am making progress towards my long term goals; however, I think I am too hard on myself. I need to celebrate my accomplishments more(really excited I completed the goals I set the previous week) and stop beating myself up...and enjoy the learning journey. Eventually, I will be able to solve people/orgs real world "pain" points.
I think the best advice I received was learn one language really good because once you learn to program, another language is just learning the different syntax. I know this helped me to narrow my focus on the longterm goals.
2. Tell us about any changes you want to make to your coding plan.
I need to carve out more time in the week to commit to coding. Sunday is my main coding day still, but during the week is hit and miss. I failed to account for building data into the database in order to work on the data visualization piece. I am using personal data, so it is not like I can obtain help to input the data for this project. I will need to add more time to my timeline to complete the overall project. I was researching how to incorporate using a message queue for sending an email, but that is being de-scoped to save some time.
Being hard on yourself - this one resonates with me!
I also try celebrate my accomplishments. Especially when I complete a task, the more challenging the task the more rewarding it feels, so the buzz from that pushes me on to do more.
All the best!
Thx KC. I appreciate it. Much success to you!
